Hi there! Welcome to the Nexus Compendium!

Ready for Adventure!

I have done my best to find and organize lots of awesome information from the Nexus that isn't available anywhere else - or from old very dusty books, ugh!

I'm having lots of fun exploring the current situation of the Nexus. So, are you ready to have an adventure together - and show uncle Chen that we can handle ourselves?

The Compendium holds lots of cool and pretty things, like these:

Ranked Reward and Other Fixes - Posted on 2020-10-28 by Gnub
A few fixes after the recent addition of the Ranked Seasons and their Rewards - mostly data related, luckily. Oh, and I finally took proper care of the dreaded 2015-11-24 Sale.
  • Wording for the Rewards in the Seasonal Questline (2019 Season 3 and onward) has been improved, and the requirements for obtaining a Portrait has been corrected.
  • The actual data for the Sale of 2015-11-24 (All Heroes, Skins and Mounts) have been properly added, and the listing fixed on the Sale Page and Overview.
  • Some errors regarding the proper listing of Sales References for Hero Price Reductions and Skins have been fixed (I'm looking at you, Lunara).
  • The logic for showing the "(estimated)" part of dates has been fixed on Currently in the Nexus, whenever an end-date in the future was shown.
  • Spectral Demon Hanzo is now correctly marked as Epic, rather than Rare.
As always, more is to come - both more fixes and actual content!


Ranked Seasons and Easier Navigation - Posted on 2020-10-23 by Gnub
The biggest part of this update is, without a doubt, the addition of Ranked Seasons to the site! But, on the side, I've also been doing some housecleaning, and added some easy navigation to the site.
  • Individual pages for every Ranked Season have been added with dates and rewards listed, as well as official link, Heroes Profile Rankings and Ranked Battleground Changes during the Season.
  • The Event Overview now also lists Ranked Seasons within the fitting year.
  • The Frontpage lists the current Ranked Season, as well as having them included in the top counters.
  • Currently in the Nexus also, in the same way, lists the current Ranked Season.
  • Mounts of the Ranked Reward type now links to the fitting Ranked Season.
  • All Individual Pages have links between them to easily cycle through all pages of their type, including Ranked Seasons, Heroes, Events, Seasonal Events, Skins, Mounts, Universes, Subuniverses, Battlegrounds.
  • If the intended of a Hero, Entity, Skin or Mount isn't found, the default picture is now faded, to make it more obvious.
  • The same pages, including Rotations and Sales, also have a link in header to the Overview of their type.
  • Seasonal Events are now also sorted based on their appearance in the year: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.
  • Pages with Entities listed have them moved down below Skins and Mounts.
  • Lots of changes behind the scenes to make the code easier to navigate for myself.
Lots more to come, as Hero Images will get an overhaul, as well as more changes behind the scenes.


Tints and Internal ID Polish - Posted on 2020-10-20 by Gnub
While the recent addition of showing Internal IDs looked neat, I figured it would be much better if it stood out a bit more - and on top of that, a few more things to make Tint listings look better.
  • Internal IDs are now highlighed like code, with a fitting font.
  • Tints listings now always show the Type and Seasonal status, no matter if it differs from the base.
  • This also applies to Rarity, Release and Event.
  • Shortened the name of the "Previously a Quest Reward" type.
As a side note, the data for the Ranked Seasons is completed, so now it's all about showing it.
